Hi,

Anybody who know a command to set preferences to e.g. "Work" ?? So that I can change from "default" to "Work" using the commandline tool boinccmd !?!?

The preferences are set online. The client will update it's own preferences the next time it contacts a project server. The local preferences don't have venues like "default", "work", or "home", etc. If you want to force the client to contact a project server immediately to download your latest preferences, you should simply issue a project update. I don't know how to do that via the command line and I don't have the time this morning to Google it for you.

Hi guys,


I use the update command all the time, and set the setting online. As you might know I'm only using SSH/and CLI to communicate with my crunchers. That's why I asked if some of you might knew a way to change the settings and not just update it trough the CLI.
I noticed quite a lot new commands for boinccmd and maybe, just maybe there would be the one I was looking for.

But thanks anyway..

There are two ways to change the settings: online and locally. Local settings overrides online settings.

I would think if you're creating a headless crunching farm, using the online settings would be preferred since you can currently create up to 4 different sets of preferences.

Once you set the preferences up the way you want them, all you need to do is go into each computer's details page online and tell it what set of preferences you want it to be a part of. Then, the next time the machine contacts the server, it will automatically download and start using those preferences you set.

Otherwise, setting up local preferences via the command line seems rather counter-intuitive to what you are trying to achieve.
